# 4th Grade Data Analysis & Probability Skills Prior Standards Implementation

### Data Analysis and Probability

Interpret data displayed in bar graphs and pictographs.
4.5.1
DP
1. All The Parts - ( 3-5 ) learn the parts of a graph.
2. Bar Graph - Enter data to create a bar graph, then manipulate the graph's maximum and minimum values
3. Circle Graph - Enter data categories and the value of each category to create a circle graph (similar to "Pie Chart" but the user can define the data set)
4. Create-a-Graph - lessons and activities for all types of graphs
5. Data Picking - Students collect data, enter tally marks or numbers and then select which graph is appropriate.
6. Grapher - interactive column graph maker, students can change values and labels
7. The Hot Tub - This is a fun activity where students tell the story behind a graph and relate slope to rate of change.
8. How It All Stacks Up - interpret and compare information using a bar graph
9. Interpreting Column Graphs - students practice by answering ten questions about the graph
10. Interpreting Data - survey a small group by clicking on each of the children, turn the tally marks into two types of graphs and then go back and take a different survey
1. Interpreting Data Quiz - after you finish the lesson above, take this quiz
11. Kids Have Pets - learn about the parts of a bar graph and how to collect information.
12. Kinds Of Graphs - learn about various types of graphs
13. Overview of a Bar Graph by Nicole Carroll followed by a practice quiz
14. Overview of a Line Graph by Nicole Carroll followed by a practice quiz ; another quiz
15. Overview of a Pictograph by Nicole Carroll followed by a practice quiz
16. Play Ball - collect data to put on a picture graph.
17. Pie Chart - view pie charts (parameters: number of sectors, size of sector as a percent)
19. Spy Guys Interactive - Understanding and Interpreting Graphs - Lesson 10 [advanced]
20. Use Graphs to Answer Questions - This Saxon math site uses pictographs or tally marks in the form of check marks. Graphs are sometimes repeated with new questions. Be careful!
21. What percentage has been shaded - Guess the percent of the shaded pie chart
Determine the most likely, least likely, or equally likely outcomes in simple experiments.
4.5.3
DP
1. Chances Are - predict the likelihood of events using a circle graph with percentages as a model
2. Coin Toss - toss enough coins to make a prediction about probability (maximum number of tosses 1000, but you can keep tossing to get a larger data set)
3. Hand Squeeze - (a data collection and analysis class experiment) - Pass a "hand squeeze" around a circle and measure the amount of time that it takes for the hand squeeze to complete the circle.
4. Heads I Win - predict the likelihood of tossing heads or tails and graphs the results of coin tosses
5. Leap Frog - design an experiment to answer a question, collect information, and interpret the results using charts
6. Lions and Tigers - predict the likelihood of a simple event (rolling a die) as a fraction
7. Me Too Probability - use a tree diagram to display possible outcomes of who will come to the party
8. The Random Ball-Picking Machine - experiment with a random generator at a BBC site to collect data to make decisions about probability.
1. After you finish working through the ball-picking activity, take a ten-question probability quiz
9. What are Your Chances - What many people refer to as 'good luck' can actually be explained by a little knowledge about probability and statistics. Our dice game allows you to see how increasing or decreasing the number of dice rolls effects an outcome.
10. Why Can't I Win? - use a spinner to predict the likelihood of simple events occurring.
11. What Are My Chances - explore probability and ratios
Select all possible outcomes of a simple experiment (i.e., spinner, coin toss, number or color cube).
4.5.4
DP
1. Coin Toss - toss enough coins to make a prediction about probability (maximum number of tosses 1000, but you can keep tossing to get a larger data set)
2. Pin The Tail - use probability to predict and conduct experiments to test predictions
3. The Random Ball-Picking Machine - experiment with a random generator at a BBC site to collect data to make decisions about probability.
1. After you finish working through the ball-picking activity, take a ten-question probability quiz
Determine the median of a data set.
4.5.5
DP
1. All That Data - use range, mean, median, and mode
2. All That Data Two - describe graphs in terms of range, measures of central tendency, and distribution
3. Jupiter Is Average - Using data from our solar system, students explore median, mode, mean, and range. Students learn to use an on-line calculator to determine the mean and range.
4. Mean Green Machine - use a calculator to find and use the average, or mean, of a set of data
5. Mean, Median, and Mode Calculator - enter numbers separated by comma and then calculate
6. Medians - understand and apply the concepts of median and mean
7. Mode, Mean, Median - calculate mode, median and mode of a set of buildings, then repeat the activity with a different set - (metric measurements)
8. Party Comedian - find and use the median of a set of data
9. Party Mode - find and use the mode of a set of data
